Right now I cannot really enjoy this gallery as I still haven't send (so many beautiful things!), but I just realized that I also haven't yet posted the beautiful items Averia sent me. So I'm taking a little time out now for posting.

Logistics were interesting this time, as Avie recycled a box (as we usually do) and it got stuck in German customs because they thought it had been sent via am**zon. This was a first for me. (This was also how I found out that the customs office had moved house – to a completely different part of the city...  Roll Eyes) But when I got to pull out bag after bag the nice lady just smiled and sent me home with my goodies, yay!

So here we go, the contents of my perfect birthday gift box: The first thing I pulled out was this lovely longish patchworky tote that Ave thought I'd hate because it turned out this rather special shape. Ha. As if. And did I mention it was purple? Next to teal and black I love purple more than anything, especially for wearables.

As you can see it now houses my knitting looms (have yet to figure out how to use them) and it is a perfect fit! Those things are large. Some of them. See:

And there are two adorable pouches with quotes straight from my pinterest (taken from Ave's, if I remember correctly).

Look at the embroidery!

The Insanity one will get my current beading project. I'm reading the tiny golden dots as beads.

And then there was more, some yummy Anne of Green Gables Maple Syrup and maple syrup candy from the Craftster Meetup in Canada (along with a few more paper goodies and a lovely card from Avie's hometown) and a tiny little dollhouse quilt. Which may have to do double duty as a coaster (has the proper authorization, too) but then I do have some lovely mugrugs...

And my favourite piece is my lovely purple dandelion purse! It is the perfect size, I can put my organizer or an A5 notebook in there and still add wallet, phone, keys, and emergency pouch thingy! And the strap is adjustable so I can even wear it as a crossbody bag. Not pictured are the zipper closure, inside pocket and zippered back pocket. But they are there!

I've used this already and am totally in love with it. As with the pouches, but the purse will get much more use. Heartiest recommendation, would invite again!

Avie, thank you so, so, so much! I love the whole package and I am very sorry you'll have to wait at least another week before receiving yours but I managed to pick weird items this time that I can't get into whenever... But we are getting ever closer to sendout!

I’ll keep adding items as I find or make them. I'm always happy to make a custom necklace or pendant for you, just allow for a few days crafting time. All items will be sent via registered mail so there will be tracking provided for most countries (USPS for example is very good about it!)

Many more shortish ones between 14 and 20 inches here sorted by colour! Will provide measurements for each. These are from my early days of beading, I'd say from 2004ish (I know I made lots during my honeymoon), mostly strung on linen thread (not stretchy).

Thanks JS, I'm so glad you like it. Here is a shot of the strands – I loved getting to play with all that purple!

I'm the first to receive! (to post, anyway...) Averia claimed me for something from my amazon wishlist, and this lovely book came to me today: Sew organized by Heidi Staples.

This has a to do list part that I want to use to get rid of the chaos in the craft room, and it seems that Avie knew this. This is the reason this book comes so handy right now: I can't get to my sewing machine. Again. (Can't even see it, as it is buried on the desk as usual...)

And while at the moment you can see the actual floor, what you can't see are the 7 bags & boxes of "fabric" I destashed (to give away mostly) plus the 5 huge bags of kiddie clothes which are all in the front part of the room, acting as a wall. So first I have to get rid of that, and then I can play! Avie, thank you so much!

Lovely crafts here indeed, and I get to add some now! Me and JS have been chatting a bit and worked out a swap for a few claims here spread over 127 & 128, and I've received ma package today! (I'm still working on my final item for her, but ought to get some work done over the weekend plus kids will be back in daycare as of Monday!) so I'll be sending out really really soon now! Tuesday at the latest, but I hope to manage Monday.

Okay, I didn't think to take a group shot, but had DH take some pics on my phone while there was some daylight left. By now the kids are asleep and we've been relaxing with a couple of beers, so I'm afraid I'm not going to take more pics tonight. Here are the least blurry ones, they do show the awesomeness included in the package! (JS, I'm very happy with what you sent, don't worry!)

We have a lovely owly green flannel that I picked that I'll be using as is for a baby blanket (to replace the one my little one had that I managed to lose). It's the perfect size and colour, and my little one adores owls. I'll add purple backing, maybe fleece, we'll see. Needs to be finished urgently, even in this hot weather.

Then there is a huge Disney fleece blanket (also my pick) that drapes well over my feet (which you can't see as the pictures were takesquare shaped) which might just end up turning into two small ones. The back is white. Just have to figure out what to add to the non-Olaf half to make it more "Elsa" – maybe add some glitter? A shiny border?

But there is also the crafted part, which is for me! First we have this Moomin shirt, which I adore, and DH has offered the opinion that he really liked it, blue and Moomin and all. He hasn't said anything about my clothes without being asked in forever, so this shirt is going to get lots of wear!

It has Moomin, lots of waves (sea! ocean!) and our names on it! It is a combination of bleach painting andfabric paint.

The other shirt (because there are two!) also has our names on it, glittery dandelions, a pink/purply peony (I've decided that's what it is) and the words "love takes root, spreads its wings, and soars" coming up my tummy:

This is all fabric paint and no bleach, I think. And it is the exact same style as one of my favourite shirts at the moment, only better!

JS, I love everything, thank you so much! And I love that you tried something new for my sake. Hopefully you will like your items as much as I do mine, then I won't have to worry anymore. I've been trying something new to me, too Wink
